Sturgeon fishing in Vancouver has grown into a world class attraction as tales spread of epic battles with these giant, prehistoric looking fish. Every year anglers make the journey to the Fraser Valley to search for an encounter with these trophy fish, but one river is forgotten and overlooked. And that is how we like it.Sturgeon fishing near Vancouver on the Pitt River and Pitt Lake is an adventure that anglers never forget. We fish the clear waters where the lower Pitt River flows into the deep lake. This is a far different experience than fishing the muddy, fast flowing, often crowded waters of the Fraser River. The Pitt River is little known to fishermen, but we know it to be the home of some of the biggest sturgeon on the planet.
We offer anglers access to all the classic runs and pools that lie between Pitt Lake and Garibaldi Park, where the river runs through a protected area. Sea run fish ride high tide up the lower Fraser River, before entering the Pitt system, and are often only days, sometimes hours, from salt water when we encounter them.The Fly Fishing Lodge is located in a remote valley, accessible by boat, float plane or helicopter only. The river that is laid out below us offers remarkable fishing for wild runs of salmon, steelhead, trout and char. We have been operating in the Pitt River Valley for over 23 years, connecting fly fishermen from around the world to big, hard running fish that are fresh from the ocean. Our exclusive new lodge, with its stunning, panoramic view, provides a luxurious setting from which a maximum of six anglers a week will set out on fly fishing expeditions.
